Hawaiʻi has a nursing shortage but hospital jobs do not come easy for new graduates
For National Nursing Week, The Conversation follows the journey of a local nurse whose ultimate goal is to be a hospital registered nurse. We first met Stephanie in October 2020 during a call-in show about Hawaiʻi’s nursing profession. It was perplexing for the recent graduate not to find employment even during a nursing shortage. We caught up with the University of Hawaiʻi nursing alum to hear about her new job at a private practice.
